Bubbletalk for Money part 2 – Formation of Belief Systems
In this article, we are going to consider whether the belief systems you have are yours or someone else’s. Well that’s interesting – How could they be someone else’s? Glad you asked. Belief systems can be handed down from generation to generation.
Here is what happens. You form a belief system and believe that it is real. Many of us have had real life experiences that don’t feel good and we feel that’s just the way reality is going to be for us until we receive new evidence. Even if you have been raised well and have had a wonderful life, you may still have road bumps that you have encountered at some point in your life. These belief systems I am about to share with you have actually been imbedded into mass consciousness.
Mass Consciousness Belief Systems
Here are some examples of mass consciousness belief systems. You will find you can easily fill in the blanks:
_______ is the root of all evil.
That person is _______ rich.
Money doesn’t grow on __________.
You must work ________ to make money.
I’m sure you will find that it’s easy to fill in those blanks. These subconscious beliefs are hovering around in the consciousness of the planet and they are still there. I bet you could answer every one of those or some form of them.
Let’s consider this a little more closely. What did you hear about money and rich people from your parents, friends, religion, teachers and your culture?
If you heard rich people were bad or evil and they are always out for themselves or they don’t care about anyone else, why would you want to become one of them? If you think rich people are takers, why would you want to be one of them? That would mean that we wouldn’t be liked and some of our greatest fears are not being liked or loved. This could hold a big block for many of you and you may not even realize it.
It’s this unconscious belief that we have always thought about rich people taking advantage of us or they are up to no good. Possibly they got their money in a “not deserving way” and we don’t want to be like that. So, it becomes a block for us.
Finding Your Unconscious Blocks
I’m going to share with you a couple of exercises where you can discern for yourself some of the unconscious beliefs around money that you could be holding. I could share with you until I’m blue in the face: ways of investing, working with your cash, or what would make it work for you, but if you are blocking money on an unconscious level, my teaching you these things won’t get very far.
On a piece of paper, number it from 1-10. Then rate yourself on a scale of 1-10, 1 being you totally disagree, 5 is halfway between, and 10 that you 100% agree. Do it as quickly as possible; the first thing that pops into your head, and don’t edit or try to figure it out.
- Money is the root of all evil.
- It’s more enlightened to be poor than rich.
- Most rich people probably did something bad or dishonest to get their money.
- Having a lot of money will make me less spiritual or pure.
- Getting rich takes too much work and struggle.
- Having a lot of money is a big responsibility.
- I don’t feel good enough to be rich.
- Realistically, chances are, I’ll never be rich.
- Getting rich isn’t for people like me.
- Getting rich is a matter of luck or fate.
Once you are finished, add up the scores to the statements. If you scored over 50, there is work to be done around your bubbletalk with money, meaning that your subconscious mind may not be in alignment with your conscious mind. If you happened to score 5 or more on any statement, you will take a closer look at those to see what your bubbletalk is saying and if it coincides with the current reality of your finances. This could be a huge ah-hah moment for finding your unconscious bubbletalk blocks.
Now you have insight as to what comes up around your finances and where you may have some resistance or blocks. This is evidence of the blocks you have held throughout the years. Now, remember, it could be your belief or it could be someone else’s and that is the next step.
Now we will see if these are your beliefs or if they have been handed down to you.
Where do these beliefs come from?
- My mother’s beliefs around money are…
- My father’s beliefs around money are…
- My beliefs around money are…
With your mother, what did you hear when you were young and what do you hear now? What are your mother’s beliefs around money? And if you don’t know, then what did you think she thought?
With your dad, what did you hear him say about money when you were little or even as an adult? What do you think he thought about money?
Finally, look at how your beliefs match any of your mother’s or father’s or even both. Do you see a pattern? You can also go back and look at your ratings to see if these answers match up with any of the ratings you had that were five points or higher.
Finding the Pattern
If you find a pattern, then you may be able to discern if it really is your belief or their belief. Understand that all things are handed down from generation to generation. Their parents handed it down and their parents, parents handed it down.
It can also become a cultural, religious or social belief system. To them, these beliefs that are handed down give you the opportunity to choose to recognize new evidence and rethink them.
When you focus your mind and you think about things, you will attract like energy to those thoughts and in turn attract your desires. Know that you cannot attract prosperity if you dislike being poor. Saying things like, “I’m poor” or “I don’t have everything I want” or “I really hate this, I feel stuck” keeps you in that vibration. Quantum physics has now proven that as sentient beings, we carry a vibration. This is the foundation of the Law of Attraction, which will be the topic of next week’s article.
